Missus
Missus | Ruth Park
1 post | 2 read | 2 to read
Missustakes us behind the lives of Hughie and Mumma, out of the gritty realism of inner city slum life and into the past of the stations, the bush and the country towns. We meet them as they were in the early 1920s, drifter Hugh Darcy, the unwilling hero who sweeps the dreamily innocent Margaret Kilker off her feet. Ruth Park richly creates the turmoil of those early days of their courtship in the dusty outback.

The 1st book in the Harp in the South trilogy. Ruth Park is one of my favourite authors ❤️ this book tells the tale of how Hughie and Ma met and came to be married. Fantastic Aussie story telling with lots of humour along the way.
